A Paradoxical approach to Innovation: How Metaboxical (Out of the Box) Thinking Can Expand the “Box” - Ken Mulligan

A Paradoxical approach to Innovation: How Metaboxical (Out of the Box) Thinking Can Expand the “Box” - Ken Mulligan

Nobel Prize winning physicist Richard Feynman observed that the “problem of creating something which is new, but which is consistent with everything which has been seen before, is one of extreme difficulty.” 

Using our imaginations to think of something that has never been seen before while “limited by the conditions that come from our knowledge of the way nature really is” requires a paradoxical approach to explore the impossible and improbable while simultaneously observing the laws of nature. To solve “a problem that we have never solved before, we must leave the door to the unknown ajar."  

In this talk, Ken explores how Metaboxical thinking can resolve this apparent paradox using a systematic approach to creativity and innovation which simultaneously uses the contents of the Box and expands the Box.  

Ken Mulligan is an adjunct professor of entrepreneurship and innovation at Arizona State University. He teaches Technology Entrepreneurship, Entrepreneurial Mindset and Strategic Enterprise Innovation in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering and New Venture Development in the WP Carey School of Business at ASU. He is a mentor and advisor to several startups focused on Regenerative Medicine, Cyber Security and Blockchain.

Invigning av Vera Sandbergs staty

Den 13 juni är det dags att avtäcka och inviga Chalmers nya staty till minne av Vera Sandberg som ska stå i Vera Sandbergs Allé, precis vid entrén från Kapellplatsen.

Vera Sandberg, den första kvinnan i Sverige som blev ingenjör, utexaminerades från Chalmers 1917. Idag är Vera en förebild för unga, en entreprenör som hade modet att gå sin egen väg mot begränsande normer och en symbol för den mångfald som eftersträvas på nutidens Chalmers.

Ingen anmälan behövs, eventet är öppen för alla!

Nanoparticle analytics: from virus infections to next generation drug-delivery vehicles - Fredrik Höök

Nanoparticle analytics: from virus infections to next generation drug-delivery vehicles - Fredrik Höök

Virus are tiny biological nanoparticles that have evolved to parasitize on the machinery of living cells, forcing each infected cell to make multiple copies, which in turn leads to an exponential growth when neighboring cells are invaded. If we could understand how viruses manage to accomplish this task, but instead use this principle to cure diseased cells or use certain cells in our bodies as factories of drugs, medical treatment could be revolutionized.

Fredrik will in this talk present how recent discoveries have unraveled that cells within our body seem to communicate genetic information with each other using biological nanoparticles that share many similarities with viruses, except causing disease. Based on this insight, he will present the major work that is presently carried out in the industrial research center FoRmulaEx, in which Chalmers together with other universities and industry partners develop next generation drug delivery vehicles inspired by how nature has solved this demanding task. In particular, he will present how the companies Gothenburg Sensor Devices and In Singulo Solutions, which he has co-founded, contribute to nanoparticle analytics and drug discovery.

Fredrik Höök is professor in Physics at Chalmers University, where he is heading the Biological Physics Division, the SSF-funded Industrial Research Center FoRmulaEx and is Vice Head of Department for Utilization and Infrastructures. In addition to Gothenburg Sensor Devices and In Singulo Solutions, he was in 1996 co-founder of Q-Sense AB, which was the first company hosted by Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship.

Wallmark seminar: Fit to compete with Harvard Business School Professor Michael Beer

Wallmark seminar

Fit to compete
How to build a high commitment and high performing organization
with Michael Beer, Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School

What are the challenges faced by organizations trying to combine high commitment to social value with high financial performance? Professor Beer argues that the main hurdle for organizations is the absence of a core management process that enables them to have open and honest conversations about what stands in the way of their success. In this seminar, he will share thoughts from his forthcoming book – “Fit to compete – How to build a high commitment and high performing organization”.

Professor Michael Beer is an esteemed researcher and management expert. He has been regarded as a world leading scholar in organizational change for decades but also known for his work on organization effectiveness, leadership, as well as human resource management.

Please register for your free ticket before May 13 here.

Coffee will be served, and there will be time for casual mingling after.

Welcome!

 

Wallmark seminar
The Wallmark seminars are held in memory of Professor Torkel Wallmark, who was appointed Professor of Innovation Technology at Chalmers University of Technology in 1983. This was the first professorship of its kind in Sweden. Professor Wallmark is remembered for his contributions to the development of a methodological and highly successful innovation approach, which still thrives at Chalmers today.

Transitions Talks - Democracy

Transitions Talks - Democracy

What if we took democracy seriously?

Environmental problems are deeply intertwined with social conflict and poverty. As climate change and resource depletion put increasing pressures on society, more and more people will be forced to migrate in search for means of survival. At the same time, global collaboration, solidarity and democracy is threatened by the rise of right-wing nationalism – refugees are treated as problems, when they are nothing but human beings that flee problems. In this seminar, we highlight the interdependence of (re)democratization and sustainability transitions, and discuss how a democratic perspective can support efforts to promote sustainable change.

Date and time: May 6th, 12.00-13.00

Venue: Veras Gräsmatta

Keynote speaker: Shora Esmailian, Journalist and activitist

Panel: TBD

Modvion - why wood is natures carbon fiber & the building material of the future

Why is wood the building material of the future and what needs to be done to get there? What impact does that have on wind power and what is it like to build 30 meter high prototypes of 150 meter high products?

Meet Otto Lundman, CEO and co-founder of Modvion and Erik Dölerud, CTO at Modvion who are on an entrepreneurial journey to reduce carbon emissions and at the same time build a sustainable venture.

Modvion designs demanding constructions in laminated wood - nature’s carbon fibre for large-scale construction. The technology enables radical emission reductions in construction by offering an cost effective alternative to emission intense materials such as steel and concrete. Modvion enables a six percent decrease in costs for wind power energy through module based wind turbine towers made by laminated wood. The module system makes for higher turbines and the material offers significant cost reduction and zero emissions.

Transitions Talks  - Divestment

Transitions Talks - Divestment

What if we moved savings and shifted investments from fossil energy assets?

Climate change calls for an immediate and immense transformation of the global energy system. But vested interests successfully resist change and maintain power and privilege – for example, fossil energy subsidies widely exceed investments in renewable energy, and many national economies are closely linked to fossil fuel interests. Sustainability transitions may accordingly require actions and policies that aim to dismantle existing industrial structures. In this seminar, we explore divestment from fossil energy assets as a tool for sustainable change and discuss how it can be used in different societal contexts.

Date and time: April 4th, 12.00-13.00

Venue: Veras Gräsmatta

Keynote speaker: Olivia Linander, Fossil Free Sweden

Panel: TBD

”Flera Vera”

Sverige behöver fler kvinnor i teknikbranschen. Men på flera ingenjörsutbildningar och i många tekniska yrken är kvinnorna idag försvinnande få. Hur kan vi få dem att bli fler?

År 1917 tog Sveriges första kvinnliga ingenjör – Vera Sandberg – examen vid Chalmers. Sverige behöver fler som Vera! Industrin skriker nämligen efter tekniskt kompetent arbetskraft, och det blir allt mer etablerat att en jämnare könsbalans gynnar teknikutvecklingen. Så hur kan vi få fler kvinnor att känna sig behövda, bli inspirerade av vad de kan åstadkomma med ingenjörskonsten som verktyg och att trivas på tekniska arbetsplatser och utbildningar?

Arrangörer:

Chalmers i samarbete med

IVA, Sveriges Ingenjörer och Teknikföretagen
